He also served as a consultant and technical analyst for the Mexican Government. He has served as a Commodity Trading Advisor and Associated Person (AP) registered with the National Futures Association (NFA). He is the creator of the MCTS Markets Commentary, an advanced automated and technically oriented market letter for the financial and commodity markets published daily in Consensus Magazine since 2003.

In September of 2012, Mr. MontesDeOca founded the Equity Management Academy, a virtual online trading academy. Our mission is to inform and educate individuals looking for alternatives to conventional wisdom with proprietary market intelligence and independent progressive research for the financial and precious metals markets.
